My blood pressure is 142 over 80 I'm 71 year old female is that normal my doctor didn't seem concerned


That is ok, but high normal. And age has no bearing on blood pressure, what is high for 12 year old is high for an 80 year old. Are you carrying extra pounds? If so loose them and lower the risk of a heart attack by lowering the blood pressure reading. You can read more at www.webmd.com

What is a normal blood pressure for a 72 year old male


talk with your doctor as blood pressure readings vary between patients, weights , age and health conditions
always have your blood pressure done by the doctor as that will give a record of any variations that could be harmful
at this point it seems slightly high but the bigger concern is the diabetes and what ever the heart condition is
again consult with your doctor and get a proper diagnosis

I wouldn't think so, I'd love it if mine were that low. You might check with your doctor's nurse just to be sure.

What should my Blood Pressure be I am a woman age 76 yrs.?


I would like to see your rate at 110/70. As one ages the first number seems to get higher and the second number lowers. The 73 point differential sounds high to me especially when you think of the excess pressure you are forcing through your arteries on each pump of the heart. Do you smoke or salt your food?

My blood pressure is 110/95 and my heart rate is 124/bpm. I am pregnant what does that mean?


110/95 Blood Pressure
Is 110/95 Good Blood Pressure or High Blood Pressure?

There are two parts or two separate numbers referred to as blood pressure: Systolic/Diastolic. If the blood pressure is 110/95 (110 over 95), it means that the systolic pressure is 110 and the diastolic pressure is 95.

110/95 blood pressure can also be read as 110/95 mm Hg, or 110/95 millimeters of mercury. The 110 mm Hg Systolic refers to the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats, and the 95 mm Hg Diastolic is the pressure in the arteries between heartbeats.

When determining if 110/95 is a good blood pressure, we looked at the American Heart Association's blood pressure chart.

Blood Pressure Systolic Diastolic Normal Less than 120 Less than 80 Prehypertension 120 - 139 80 - 89 High Blood Pressure
(Hypertension) Stage 1 140 - 159 90 - 99 High Blood Pressure
(Hypertension) Stage 2 160 or higher 100 or higher Hypertensive Crisis
(Emergency care needed) Higher than 180 Higher than 110
For 110/95 to be good, both numbers must fit into the "normal" category above. Otherwise, it will fall into other categories of High Blood Pressure.

Systolic reading of 110 is in the Normal range.
Diastolic reading of 95 is in High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Stage 1 range.
Therefore, 110/95 is High Blood Pressure (Hypertension Stage 1).

I NEED AN OWNERS MANUAL FOR BA-616W ...GOT IT 2 YRS AGO AND ONLY HAVE THE INSTRUCTION SHEET ..BUT I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ THE NUMBERS AND WHAT THEY MEAN. PLEASE HELP


As a 30 year EMT, I think I can help you.

There's 2 numbers that make up your blood pressure. The top number is called the Systolic pressure. The bottom number is call the Diastolic pressure. When a blood pressure is taken, it's measuring the pressure that the heart is producing when it pumps blood through the arteries. For example, what's considered a normal blood pressure in a healthy individual is in the range of 120/80. Of course age, life style and other health conditions, play a role in what yours may be. A person with High blood pressure or Hypertension would have a blood pressure of over 160 - Systolic and over 90+ Diastolic. 90 is actually the borderline for hypertension. That's why I indicated 90+.

The other reading on your monitor is your heart rate or pulse rate. It's how many beats your heart completes in one minute. It also indicates an irregular heart beat by the showing a small LED window on the left of the screen adjacent to the Systolic pressure reading, It will say IHB. Any movement or shaking or talking during the measurement can result in pulse irregularities. So hold very still when taking your blood pressure. This irregularity by itself is not of much concern, unless it shows up frequently. In which case, you should seek medical advice.

That covers just about all there is to know about what the readings mean. Armed with this, you should be able to effectively monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate and report them to your doctor.

Hope I was able to help you understand how it works and what it's telling you. if so, please let me know, by rating my response to you. Thanks and have a healthy day.

Blood pressure Question


Measuring your own blood pressure is an important way of monitoring your health. High blood pressure is a major health problem, which can be treated effectively once detected. Measuring your blood pressure between doctor visits on a regular basis in the comfort of your home, and keeping a record of the measurements, will help you to monitor any significant changes in your blood pressure. You should also keep an accurate record of your blood pressure, to help your doctor diagnose and possibly prevent any health problems in the future.
